I’m a great-grandmother living in the center of the United States in the state of Kansas. My interests are varied, art, reading, history, cooking and baking, collecting all sorts of stuff, writing and many types of needlework including crochet, knitting, tatting, needlepoint, blackwork, beadwork, and cross stitch.

Some of the things I collect are rocks, old fountain pens, calligraphy pens and inks and books, crystals, interesting beads, all sorts of old books, antique figurines, teapots and tea cups, tatting shuttles, crochet hooks, knitting needles and old books on any type of needlework.

  8. Thanks so much for stopping by my site, I look forward to catching up with you. I have a confession to make, I thought you might find this interesting / odd as a person who collects beads. I can’t go into bead stores because it causes me to have a weird compulsion to grab a handful of them and shove them in my mouth!!! What do you think THAT could be about???

    A big smile to see all your “likes” on my blog when I awoke this morning. There really is some juicy stuff on there! I also love the idea of people getting an Infusion of Love and Beauty every few days (or weeks!) when I send out a post. Best to you (and I’m off to browse your site right now). Light and Love – Julianna
